I was just comparing the 330d (manual) numbers to the 335d (from today's press release). i just gotta say DAY-UM!!!!

HP: 330d- 245@4k, 335d- 286@4400
Torque: 330d- 384 lb-ft from 1750 to 3000, 335d- 428 from 1750 to 2250
0-100kmh: 330d (manual)- 6.1 sec, 335d (auto only)- 6.0
top spd: 250kmh on both (electronically limited)
EU Fuel economy (converted to US mpg ):
330d- 32.2 urban, 49 extra-urban, 41.3 combined
335d- 25.8 urban, 44.4 extra-urban, 35.1 combined

the new 330d outperforms the 325d on fuel economy in the city, and matches its combined numbers, and outperforms by a considerable margin performance wise.

Note that all 3 of the 6 cylinder diesel engines have the same displacement.
